Auckland Council has alerted beach-goers to 39 city spots that have a "high risk" of illness from swimming.
The warnings come after yesterday's deluge of rain that overloaded parts of the storm and wastewater networks. A black alert indicating a very high risk of illness from swimming was issued for Castor Bay just after 3pm yesterday.
It's recommended that people do not enter the water while the warnings are in place.
Check here to see where's safe to swim.

Our two dogs (small - shizu terrier cross) got off our fully fenced property on Saturday around 3.30pm. Both had their walking leads still attached to them.
If anyone has seen them, they may be tangled or caught on a tree, or someone may have kindly taken them into their homes. They went missing from Princes St Otahuhu. One of the dogs has a tag with our telephone number.
Please call us and we will gladly collect them and reward you for your kindness in taking care of them. The black one is Haeremai and the tri colour one is Matariki. You can also call the Animal Shelter in Henderson on 09 836 7777. They will also collect. Thanks so much. They are loved and we miss them.
